This is my first post here. I have been reading through the many posts containing an abundance of information. I have a question regarding the audio hookup 5.1 or 7.1 . I have a Toshiba 37" LCD. It has all the A/V jacks anyone should need I would think. I want to purchase a BD-35 to save the extra $100 over its sister, the BD-55. The two appear to be pretty much the same, with the exception of the lack of analog sound jacks on the 35. It does have a digital optical jack. I have tried researching if this jack will pull through the 5.1 or 7.1 that I'm looking for. Does anybody have the answer to this? Also, whereas there is only 1 HDMI on the BD-35, I'm sure it is a given that it goes to the HDTV. So even if I purchased a brand new receiver where does the 7.1 soundtrack travel from/to? I've read that video and audio travel through the HDMI. But if that is plugged into the TV and there is only one installed on a Blue Ray, what is the answer? Thanks for any and all answers in advance.
